Inside the new Pius X steeple

On Tuesday, I got to witness a church steepl flying through the air, as you can see from the photo there.

It was the new Pius X steeple in Selinsgrove. The previous steeple had been ripped apart in a storm in July, and this week the new steeple finally went up!

It was pretty cool – I think it’s hard to imagine how these kinds of things are built when you don’t see them being done -steeples are such big, towering things, we kind of assume they’ve just always been on top of the building.

So anyway, we got to witness the crane lift the new steeple on top of the building, but before that, we got a look up inside of the new steeple.

It was pretty cool – and of course I took a photo to share with you all:20131204-110754.jpg

The old church bells have been replaced with speakers, but that’s fine in my book. Whatever makes it easier for them.
